We search for happiness everywhere, but we are like Tolstoy’s fabled beggar who spent his life sitting on a pot of gold, begging for pennies from every passerby, unaware that his fortune was right under him the whole time. You’re treasure-your perfection-is within you already. But to claim it, you must leave the busy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart. The KUNDALINI SHAKTI-the supreme energy of the divine-will take you there. Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
Found in our very being is this Divine Spiritual Power, called by many names she is indeed the ‘perfection within’ our very own ‘pot of gold’ she is the sacred lovelight that ignites us and the force so strong it unites as with Oneness.
Kundalini Shakti / ‘Shakti’ / The Divine Feminine / The Great Goddess is our own spiritual guide, the power that strives to lead us to reach our own spiritual Nirvana, regardless of religion, culture, background etc, we are all the vessels of this life force.
More profound than energy alone, Shakti is also the temple body; energy, mind, discerning wisdom. Acknowledging the path to this Shakti force within us reawakens our own calling to the Divine Feminine, for what she is, we are … she is merely awaiting to be released from her contained state. Kundalini is tightly coiled in waiting, once she is awoken she will dynamically rise up and travel though many pathways of your body to elevate you on every level, break through your blockages, and clear your obstacles (those which are self inflicted and those which you have unconsciously chosen to store), with the ultimate goal to drive you to Oneness. But the path of Kundalini is one some devote a life time to preparing and cleansing the body, heart and mind to purify and strengthen it to contain the force of Kundalini. But connecting to your unique essence, some times misconstrued as ‘kundalini’, is your unique, inner feminine essence. Discovering and embodying this ‘essence’ may well be part of your journey to clearing the way for your Kundalini awakening.
(Shatki Blossom – Vivianne Nantel)
So how do you embrace your inner Divine Feminine in its authentic power?
How do you deepen your connection and spiritual journey to benefit your career, relationship with self and others, ignite your truth, radiate your beauty and clear the way to your true life purpose? How do you bring your divine feminine essence into your every day?
There are many ancient practices that welcome you to go into the heart. For many women the path ‘form’ and the body is often the chosen path towards the Divine Feminine. Some simple and practical ways you may like to try to connect first with body (then to progress to emotion, heart, mind and then towards soul) may start with;
Dance – Take a class, groove in your car as you drive along, put the music on in your lounge room and free style!
Yoga – Practiced alone or in a group, you can find a class near you or find an online video to enjoy in the comfort of your own sacred space. Awakening the Divine Feminine energy within your body temple through breath and movement is an invigorating way to connect mind, body, soul.
Breath work – Focusing on the magical life force going in and out of your body temple is powerful on it’s own. Sit still for even a few minutes with your hand on your heart / Yoni and allow the rhythmic flow of breath move you into a present state of consciousness, of being. Being is Divinely Feminine.
Yoni massage – You may simply enjoy creating a sacred space for yourself and exploring the beauty and wonder of your Yoni as you connect with her, her texture, warmth, juices and all the sensations she gifts you with. *organic coconut oil used as a ‘massage oil’ is nourishing and sensual! Drop the fear, judgement and any mask you have been wearing and just be you. Explore. Enjoy.
Breast massage – Is also a powerful way to connect with Divine Feminine as your breasts are the portal of your ‘giving’ powers as a woman.
Chakra regression (of your 2nd chakra) – The power in healing your YONI / your second chakra opens up the energy pathways to your heart and streams through to your throat, so you can express yourself and communicate with authenticity from your most powerful, Divinely Feminine self.
Meditation – Guided, in a class, on your own, with a mantra, with breath work included or simply just sitting still, in silence, to stop and calm the mind and bring you into the present will not only change your energy and stress levels, it will also allow you to open up as a channel to hear when Shakti speaks to you (shows you signs and offers guidance). Stillness speaks. You know this. Honour it and give it a try. 5 minutes a day is Stella.
(Moon Goddess – Toni Carmine Salerno)
Each of these techniques and many more awaken the uninhibited flow of self expression. The Goddess is an infinite pool of creativity, to awaken this Divine Feminine essence within you may also like to;
Write poetry, a novel, journal
Prepare a meal
Paint your nails, do your hair, or make-up
Style a room or sacred space
By honouring this innate wisdom, beauty and creativity of Shakti / The Divine Feminine/ Great Goddess, in turn you honour her within yourself and start the journey to finding the next door to follow your unique path further and further along. Peeling back your own layers, discovering what your individual feminine essence looks like, feels like, is…
Set some time aside to ‘honour’ her as you awaken her within you and you too may find that the power of such life force can infiltrate every aspect of your life and awaken every part of you that has been contained, suppressed, neglected and unheard. Then allow that, all of that which yearns to be set free, to move through you and be expressed, to release and let go. To clear the way, to purify and prepare you for being a barer of even more light, as you learn to shine and radiate your unique essence.
(Artist – Toni Carmine Salerno)
Lives eternally through you.
She is the invisible light that you feel in your heart.
She is the light that shines beyond the heavenly stars.
She is the eternal flame.
Through her we discover a
She is a luminous shadow. She is a three-fold flame.
– Toni Carmine Salerno
The more you awaken Her within, the more you will awaken to the potential that lives inside of you, to your true, unique ‘perfection’ and you will release all that you have kept hidden. Then your brilliant light can shine brighter for yourself and the greater good.
If you don’t know where to start, listen to your inner voice, ask your heart, ask your Yoni, ask Her, “Where do I start? What can I do right now to start this awakening within me?” Give her a moment. She will answer you.
Where will you start today, Beautiful Soul?
